New municipal Port Police Regulations come into force - Port of Antwerp

Modification 3 of the Municipal Port Police Regulation, the Port Instructions and related forms come into force on the 12th of November 2018, Port of Antwerp said in its press release.

The port and the social context in which it operates are in a constant state of flux. It is therefore essential for the Police Regulation to take account of the changing situation and requirements.

In modification 3 of the Port Police Regulation various articles were modified, and various new provisions were added.

In 2014 the Port Instructions were drawn up to supplement the Municipal Police Regulation, to serve as a guide for how the latter should be applied. Some Port Instructions were modified, some new Instructions were added. Correspondence between the Police Regulation and the Port Instructions is still ensured by having parallel numbering, with corresponding articles sharing the same number.
